    Hi,

    I have been tasked with creating a web service to recieve quote information.
    I have written webservices before but with little security (by passing
    usernames).

    My question / advise needed is how to make security for an unlimited number
    of users as currently this will be used my 100 different locations and the
    information is coming from a 3rd party application.

    hope this makes sense

    how'about using a token that remains alive in the client session.

    Write a wrapper to do the login, then call that wrapper passing the needed
    values and the wrapper passes back the token, session(userinfo) as an object
    w/limits rights to do certain things
